something blue

Happy New Year!!


I picked up a little something blue while in Canada over the holidays.
Thought I would share. It is destined to be a lacy scarf, even if you can't tell that from this picture:

I can't believe that

we're 4 days out of the Iowa caucus and there has been no comment here.....

Maybe none of us were surprised by the outcome, tho' I was a bit -- after all of the media hype that Hillary was inevitable (fed by her saying so by running against Bush right out of the gate), her 3rd place was a bit of an eye opener

And now, I must say that I have changed my mind too, and when we attend our caucus on Feb 5 I'm going to stand for John Edwards. After reading the web sites with all their position papers, his views on health care, education, gay marriage and corporate greed are the closest to mine. Also his whole "we're mad as hell and we aren't going to take it any more" attitude matches mine too. I don't think the Republicans are going to just lay down to a reasoned, intellectual approach, we're going to be scrapping it out to the finish, and Edwards seems to be willing to do that.

On the other side, who could have thought that Huckabee could be the winner in Iowa? (In fact, who thought he would even be in the top 3?) Quite interesting on that front as well. Could it be that the Republicans are having a change of heart too -- one can hope, but I doubt it

The most encouraging thing of all tho' is the huge number of folks that turned out. Lets hope that trend continues and the voice of the people is actually heard
